From students, for students: The Maize and Blue Cupboard

From four-hour pop-ups in constantly-rotating locations across campus to a permanent home in the heart of the University of Michigan’s Central Campus, the Maize and Blue Cupboard has grown far beyond Wesley Zhu’s wildest expectations.

Zhu always had a passion for social entrepreneurship and creating sustainable businesses. It’s a part of the reason why Zhu, a 2017 graduate from the Ross School of Business, chose to attend U-M and influenced the student organizations he chose to join.
